SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2023 – Topicals, the revolutionary skincare company that seeks to transform the way people feel about their skin through effective products and mental health advocacy, and Change, a technology platform powering donations, announced today their strategic partnership to provide mental health support for marginalized communities. Change powers the community-driven donations at checkout that benefit Topicals’ new Mental Health Fund. This announcement comes during Mental Health Awareness Month and underlines how mental health and skin health are intrinsically connected.
Topicals awarded funding to five women-founded organizations that support mental health within BIPOC communities as part of their new Mental Health Fund. Together, Topicals and these organizations will create programming that encourages personal well-being and builds safe spaces that foster community building, combat loneliness, and establish genuine relationships.
Change's powerful donations API enables Topicals to seamlessly integrate charitable giving into their checkout process, providing customers the opportunity to contribute to one of the organizations in the Mental Health Fund. This creates a stronger sense of belonging for Topicals' customers, empowering them to support their own communities. By handling the payment and regulatory requirements, Change enables Topicals to support their greater community, engage with their customers, and launch effective impact campaigns. Additionally, Topicals will implement an impact tracker, powered by Change, to keep their community updated on donation progress.
“We're thrilled to partner with Change to provide our customers with the opportunity to support organizations they feel passionate about and create an ecosystem around giving that feels organic and participatory.”
